Princess Grace Supreme!

The all-conquering Princess Grace maintained her exceptional record this season when taking the $660,000 Gr. 3 Kentucky Downs Ladies Turf Stakes on Saturday.

Susan and John Moore’s daughter of Karakontie was given a peach of a ride by Florent Geroux, slow out of the gates but patiently ridden with a ground-saving trip before being delivered down the stretch, prevailing by half a length.

When asked about her slow start, Stidham said, “With the kind of horse she is, you worry but you’re not as worried.”

Saturday’s victory marks Princess Grace’s third win out of just three starts this season, having claimed the Gr. 2 Yellow Ribbon Stakes at Del Mar the time prior. And she enjoys a near-perfect career record, with one second-place finish (in last year’s Gr. 3 Pin Oak Valley View Stakes) the only minor blot during her seven-race resume.
